Why Pelvic Floor Health Is So Important...

Did you know that in France, OBGYN's prescribe postpartum women 10-20 sessions of pelvic physical rehab, and it’s covered as part of the country’s government health care plan? Sadly, pelvic physical therapy is relatively new and most women don't even know that care exists.

The result? Incontinence, low-back pain, pain or lack of sensation during sex and more. Many women spend years coping with symptoms of a weakened pelvic floor not realizing there is help out there...

Marissa Farrell, who is often referred to as "the Vagina lady" created The InHara Practice to provide a system of movement for women to reconnect with their most primal portion of the body, the pelvis.  She returns to Elements3 Yoga with a special half-day version of her signature InHara System workshop in July. 

WHAT DOES "INHARA" MEAN?
The word "Hara", means "soft-abdomen" in Japanese. The InHara Practice is a system of movement and specific sequences of "exercises" to connect with, tone, invigorate, and juice up the abdominal walls and pelvic floor.

WHAT'S SO IMPORTANT ABOUT THE PELVIC FLOOR?
The pelvic floor muscles form the base of he muscle group we refer to as "the core"; playing a big roll in supporting and stabilizing the spine. What looks like a "hammock" these muscles also support our internal organs. Aging, supporting a baby during pregnancy, childbirth, changing hormones, and other common events can weaken these muscles. A weak pelvic floor can cause prolapse, incontinence, lack of sexual sensation, diastasis recti, and low creative motivation and be experienced at any age.

HOW WILL THE WORKSHOP HELP?
Marissa has taken her years of experience as a doula, birth coach, and decades of study to create a specific sequence of “exercises” to connect with, tone, invigorate, and juice up the abdominal walls and pelvic floor. Immediate results have been: a stronger center and lift to a sagging pelvic floor.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE $150?
Participants will leave with a detailed manual and access to additional resources to help support a continued home-practice of what is learned in class. The InHara System is more than just your average workshop, its a course to help empower women with techniques to restore an essential part of their bodies. “Returning our bodies to normal function and alignment is also a long-term investment” Marisa Alonso, co-founder of Body Connect
